Losing a loved one is extremely difficult, regardless of their age and the circumstances of their death. As much as you want to concentrate on coping with the loss and comforting your family, you may need to consider retaining legal representation. Handling your family member or loved one's estate can be overwhelming and even unmanageable if problems arise, making the responsibility impossible to handle on your own. Our Jackson probate attorneys at Shows & Smith Law Firm PLLC can support and guide you through the probate process.
The probate court can be difficult to deal with, but our team of lawyers have served the community for more than 50 years. We are extremely familiar with how probate matters are handled in this state and can protect your loved one's rights. Our legal team is prepared to take on your matter, even if litigation is required to settle disputes.
The probate process typically occurs if your loved one dies without a last will and testament or trust and the objective of probate is to determine how their debt and assets will be handled. Once the probate process has been completed, the taxes will be paid, heirs will receive their inheritances, and titles or assets are transferred.
Our Jackson estate planning attorneys' top priority is to help you get through the process as efficiently and quickly as possible. We want to make any legal issues as straightforward as we can, so you and your family can focus on mourning your loved one.
